Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

You have multiple options for building your own meshes. Check out UProceduralMeshComponent that is part of the engine as a plugin

Alternatively, use this: https://www.unrealengine.com/marketplace/runtime-mesh-component

Use the library to build your quads. To build a quad, create 4 vertices and 3+3 indices for your 2 triangles
